Ok guys, take a guess on who might have given me HPV:
1. 5 1/2 years ago I had unprotected anal sex with a guy about 3 times, thats all we did.
2. I had unprotected vaginal and oral sex with a guy for about 3 years, he was a virgin when we met and I'm 100% sure he never cheated on me. (of course he never had or has had warts to)
3. I've been having sex, for about 3 months always with a condom with a guy who was not a virgin, but doesn't have one wart and has never had them
my warts broke out for the first time about a month and a half ago. I feel very confused and frustrated about how I got this virus...I mean, the only risky relationship was 5 1/2 years ago and it was anal, so, shouldn't I have had to get anal warts instead of vaginal? and 5 1/2 years ago?
HPV ..especially low risk is spread thru skin to skin contact and doesn't require penetration and condoms don't fully protect you..you could've gotten it from ANY of your past sexual partners..not everyone that has genital warts show symptoms or even showw them immediately..really depends on your immune system...some pple may have had them and didn'yt even know what they were..sorry
hey..im 22 and just been diagnosed with hpv now i have no symptoms no warts or anything i only found out i had it through a smear test.now from what iv been told as i only got diagnosed with this last friday, that as roses711 said it doesnt matter if they have symptoms or not some have some dont.luckly though from what i have read people that have warts/hpv is more of a low risk, but unfortunately for people like me who have no warts just the hpv virus is high risk. and you can get hpv through skin to skin contact even if ur sexual partners wore a condom. its very hard to understand as im just comming to terms with it myself.but if i find out anything else as visiting my nurse tommrow il let you know.but chin up :O)
stop worrying about who gave it to you and worry about treating yourself.... they dont have any test for men to tell wather or not they have it unless they have visible warts ......yes you can have HPV for 10 + years and it will not show any signs.....when having anal sex his ball are hitting your vaginal area so yes its possible.... just do the treatment and protect yourself.... good luck
